WCR Letters to the Editor
'Fiery sermons' against abortion are neededAbortion will be a great issue on the minds of many Canadians. Will graphic photos of aborted babies (WCR, May 14, 21) make much difference to a society that does not fear God and where evil has entered in every establishment including the Church?
Pardon me father, but when was the last time you gave a fiery sermon on the evil of man and woman? We are a meek society that is afraid to offend.
Many Catholics abort babies and condone abortion. We must thank the people who have devoted their lives to trying to stop abortions, but we Catholics must stand up and be counted.
The Church must be on the front line, leading the way, instead of watching others fight the battle. God tells us to obey our governments, but not to condone injustice.
As a Church we must re-organize, use new tactics, well, old tactics that always worked for God's chosen people - prayers and offerings to our Almighty God, on a continuous basis.
Invite other religions to join us in prayer and make it the loudest voice in Canada. Our Supreme Court and governments have let us down, but there is no sense in pointing fingers.
Our Supreme Court made an erroneous judgment (when life begins) and it still remains in our laws and it must be removed or amended. It can be done as we have the mightiest of lawyers on our side.
As faithful people, let us show our Lord Jesus, that he didn't suffer and die in vain for us. Abortion leads to another crime against humanity - euthanasia.
Our country is becoming unbalanced as we have too many seniors and a shortage of newborns. Eventually, euthanasia will be legalized to offset the shortage of birth.
So, beware seniors! You survived the first round of elimination, will you survive the second round?
It is time to prove your faith in God. Fear the wrath of God instead of this evil world. May God bless you all.
